    This is a pretty huge one, we operate allot of IP space within our cloud stacks and very frequently assign out additional addresses to customers and they are never happy about having us reboot their VM for such a simple task.

    Should just be like adding another option / hook to the current GUI where you can choose not to rebuild network in the VM.

    I know it has been a while since this suggestion was submitted but we have not formally replied to the request. A while back we implemented the UpdateFirewall transaction in OnApp that will update the iptables rules on a hypervisor when an IP address is added to a VM so that the routing rules are in place. You can now add an IP to a VM without a reboot and then manually configure the additional IP address within the VM and the IP will then route to the VM without a reboot. If you would like the OnApp system to configure the IP on the VM then a rebuild network will be necessary, which will reboot the VM.
